1 libDAI-0.2.2 (2008-??-??)

2 -------------------------

4 * Now compiles also under Visual C++.

5 * Added Exceptions framework.

6 * Replaced ENUM2,ENUM3,ENUM4,ENUM5,ENUM6 by single DAI_ENUM macro.

7 * Removed utils/remove_short_loops and matlab/remove_short_loops.

8 * Added more features to utils/createfg for creating factor graphs.

9 * Pervasive change of BipartiteGraph implementation (based on an idea by

10 Giuseppe Passino). BipartiteGraph no longer stores the node properties

11 (former _V1 and _V2), nor does it store a dense adjacency matrix anymore,

12 nor an edge list. Instead, it stores the graph structure as lists of

13 neighboring nodes. This yields a significant memory/speed improvement for

14 large factor graphs, and is more elegant as well. Iterating over neighbors is

15 made easy by using boost::foreach.

16 * Improved index.h (merged from SVN head):

17 - Renamed Index -> IndexFor

18 - Added some .reserve()'s to IndexFor methods which yields a

19 25% speedup of testregression

20 - Replaced multind by Permute

21 - Added MultiFor

22 - Added State

23 * Improved factor.h (merged from SVN head): mainly new functionality

24 * Moved everything into namespace "dai"

25 * Added ExactInf class for brute force exact inference

26 * Renamed DEBUG to DAI_DEBUG to avoid conflicts

27 * Added conditional compilation of inference methods

28 * Contributions by Peter Gober:

29 - Renamed variable _N in mr.* for compatibility with g++ under cygwin

30 * Contributions by Giuseppe Passino:

31 - removed "using namespace std;" from header files - bad practice

32 - moved header files in include/dai and sources in src

33 - changed #ifndefs to GNU style

34 - added extra warning checks (-W -Wextra) and fixed resulting warnings

35 - dai::TProb:

36 o removed copy constructor and assignment operators (redundant)

37 o implementation of some methods via STL algorithms

38 o added methods takeExp, takeLog, takeLog0 for transformation in-place

39 o explicit constructor (prevents implicit conversion from size_t to TProb)

40 o added operator+,+=,-,-=, with argument T (for calculations in log-scale)

41 - Added "logdomain" property to BP, a boolean that controls whether

42 calculations are done in the log-domain or in the linear domain;

43 doing calculations in the log-domain may help if the numerical range

44 of a double is too small.

45 * Contributions by Christian Wojek:

46 - New FactorGraph constructor that constructs from given ranges of factors

47 and variables

48 - Optimization of FactorGraph constructors using tr1::unordered_map.

49 * FactorGraph constructors no longer check for short loops (huge speed

50 increase for large factor graphs), nor for negative entries. Also, the

51 normtype is now Prob::NORMPROB by default.

52 * VarSet is now implemented using a std::vector<Var> instead of a

53 std::set<Var>, which yields a significant speed improvement.

54 * Improved MaxSpanningTreePrims algorithm (uses boost::graph)

55 * Small optimization in Diffs

56 * Replaced Complex with real numbers (negative potentials is just not

57 used enough to warrant the additional "complexity" :))

58 * Moved Properties and MaxDiff frameworks from InfAlg to each individual

59 inference algorithm, because the Properties framework was not as

60 convenient as I hoped, and not every inference algorithm needs a maxdiff

61 variable. Also, replaced some FactorGraph functionality in InfAlg by a

62 function that returns the FactorGraph. The result is cleaner (less

63 entangled) code.

64 * Improved ClusterGraph implementation, yielding significant speedups

65 for the JunctionTree algorithm on large factorgraphs.

66 * Improved documetation

67 * Interface changes:

68 - VarSet::

69 stateSpace() -> states()
